As the Yoga journey continues… Last night, which was my fifth yoga class, we were introduced to The Crow Pose. After a bit of instruction, I tried to get into the pose a few times. I was able to get my legs off the ground a support myself a bit. It was fun and the same time very challenging. This is something I can see I will working on for a while. After doing some research online I also learned that this pose is an entryway to many other poses. The pose like everything else in Yoga seems like an even split between strength in various muscles and lining up your physical structure so that it can support itself. Aside from the introductory crow pose experience, I felt during the session I was able to get into a few of the stretches a bit more and also less physical stress on my legs. My hips, lower legs, and torso still are feeling really tight. Progress comes slowly.
On to class no. 6 this week.
